“Not bad.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014 via mobile

We visited with three children,I thought they would be more models there after seeing advertising.
The models themselves were very lifelike.
The Coronation st sadly was a disappointment more like a cafe,the waxworks here were old as my eldest didn't know who they were .I.e Bet and Hilda Ogden...this needs updates.

We would of liked to have seen more up to date ones ..especially in the music department and sporting area.

Expensive,fun but more up to date models.
Grumpy stAff on exit.
A smile and goodbye would of been nice not a grump!
Exchange your Tesco vouchers then you won't feel so let down.

“Not as good as it used to be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014 via mobile

I visited with my family and we were expecting it to be better than when it was Louis Tussauds but unfortunately it has became worse.The chamber of horrors has now gone which was our favourite bit and there wasn't really that many waxworks there as there used to be.It also only took us about an hour to go round the whole thing.
It was still a fun morning there though as it wasn't that busy so we didn't have to wait around that long so we got lots of pictures.

“Very good life like wax works”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014

My children loved this, we posed with most of the wax works for photos. I particularly liked the royals and the Star Wars part. Excellent photo opps throughout and hands on displays, really enjoyed this. You pay extra and separately for the chamber of horrors, which is good as we didn't want to go in having young children with us. I have been in it in previous years and remember it had xenobytes from hellraiser which were excellent. Will def go again.

So much fun to be had in this place. Forget about people watching and just have fun posing with the rich and famous. Also have a drink in the Rovers.
